    Our family is heartbroken from the loss of Don. He loved his wife so much. They had 3 children Amber, Matt, and Mike, plus many grandchildren. They all knew grandpa was a phone call away to help with a problem. His wife lost the love of her life. The children and grandchildren lost a wonderful man who cared for them. I lost a brother.. But we know he is with his Heavenly Father. And with God’s grace we will see him again. Sandie & David
